I will meditate also of all thy work, and talk of thy doings (Psalms 77:12 KJV)

I have written extensively on meditation, and I would encourage you to follow the threads on meditation on our site patrickoben.com. In essence, meditation can be compared to the process of eating food and assimilating it to become one with our body. It is the process by which your heart feeds on the Word of God, takes it in, and melds to become one with it.
In The OT culture, the Jews knew two significant aspects of meditation as revealed above. It was thinking and speaking the Word of God. The first part of meditation is having the mind focus, brood, and roll over the Word of God. Something happens to your heart whenever your mind is FIXATED on the Word of God. The more this happens, the better it is for you. The second part of meditation is speaking the Word. This is not teaching or preaching. It is talking to yourself. This is the strangest aspect of meditation which many of us today will find weird and uncomfortable. Meditation is speaking the words of God with our mouth again and again, just as your minds rolls over it repeatedly.
I encourage you to make meditation a part of your life.
Take a moment and meditate on Psalms 77:12 above.
APPLY THE WORD
Many Christians mistakenly call reading the Bible or studying it meditation. Meditating on the Word of God is distinct from reading or studying the scripture though it can occur concurrently. Read, study and meditate! I want to know where you are with meditating on the Word. Write to me or leave a comment below to tell me how you are doing with meditating on God’s Word.
Ask the Spirit for a fresh baptism of meditating on the Word!
